My Love Affair with Words

One of my greatest childhood possessions was my library card. My stay-at-home mom didn’t have a car, so a “trip to the library” consisted of visiting the bookmobile during its bimonthly trek to our neighborhood. The selection of books wasn’t large, but neither was I—I left that bookmobile every two weeks with a pile of books and a huge smile on my face. I could never decide which book to read first, so I’d start several at once. My mother marveled that I didn’t confuse the plots, but I never had a problem with switching between stories, and I enjoyed them all (especially with a flashlight under the covers after the official “lights out”).

My love affair with words began early, and it has grown and morphed over the many years that have passed since those bookmobile days. I’ve always been fascinated with the way words sound, the way they look, and the rules surrounding their use that often seem arbitrary (but seldom are).

I suppose it is natural, then, that I ended up working with words for my profession, and today I take great delight in helping writers polish their sentences, paragraphs, and pages so those strings of words express their unique vision. If you’ve written anything—a short story, your own blog, an article, a research paper, a book—I’m here to help you make it the very best it can be.

One day soon, someone will be reading YOUR words under the covers with a flashlight!
